At the end of October it was once again the Yellows who were our best six. Points this month include those earned at Remembrance Sunday.
Despite our best efforts to level up the numbers in each six the poor old Reds have suffered from some unexpected departures and now only have 4 members. With most of the points this month coming from inspection and attendance this hits them hard, knocking them into third place. With our reduced numbers we sadly closed Green six this month.
Our Cub of the Month was James who made this his second consecutive month by completing some challenge badges at home.
In October the competition between Yellows and Blues continued but this time the Yellows ended up in the lead.
Our Cub of the Month was James who was one of three Cubs who became a Sixer or Seconder in the month. On top of his regular attendance and good inspection points this earned him +25 points which pushed him into the lead.
Sadly October is the last month that the Greens will be taking part in the competition. With falling numbers ahead of the change of leaders at Christmas we have closed down the Greens and just have three sixes now.
Our pack meeting on 16 October 2018 was a bit different as we were visited by the RepTylers from Brighton and their collection.
During the evening we met snakes, spiders and lizards. The Cubs got the chance to hold or touch the creatures – in some cases having to overcome their fears to do so. We even got Akela to hold the tarantula.
As you will see from the pictures, Cubs is not just kids stuff – we’re always pleased to have more helpers so do ask if you would like to get involved next time.

For the last 6 months the Six of the Month has alternated between the Yellows and the Greens. At the end of July it was almost the Yellows again but the Blues surged ahead for a convincing win.
In addition to the points earned at our pack meetings in July we included points gained through the completion of badges at Summer Camp. Unfortunately nobody from Reds came to camp and so this left them rather well behind in fourth place.
Our Cub of the Month was Izzy who did well for badges at Summer Camp, including completing her Adventure challenge.
